Has any body used the traction bars they sell thru CPP or on EBay for around $120.00.They include the spring plate with bracket and looks like 1 single bar that attaches to one side only at the front spring.Just wanting to know if they work.Cal tracks are suppose to be the hot set up but pricey.Either way the wheel hop has to go.

Like he said above - you get what you pay for. Note that some of the copies may look like a Caltrac but often they do no work like the Caltrac design. They lack the bellcrank which is the key element to the Caltrac design and it's performance on the strip. Many of those copies lacking the above feature are not as effective as the old Lakewood "J"-bolt traction bars. If you are on a budget you should be able to find a set of those for 50-150 bucks. Caltracs are more of a track package and one might consider the old school Lakewood bars for a vehicle destined primarily for street use.

What he said -

Stillz 55, I agree with Zookpr, find some used Lakewood Ladder Bars if you're on a tight budget. Easy to install, simple, will eliminate the wheel hop if your not cranking out serious HP. :)
